Applications Open for Youth Environmental Programme

Applications are open for Bright Green Future, a UK-wide environmental leadership programme for young people (14-17) run by the Centre for Sustainable Energy. The scheme is looking for the next cohort of young people who are passionate about the environment and want to gain the skills and knowledge to create a different world.

Bright Green Future is CSE's environmental leadership programme for teenagers aged 14-17 who want to create a more sustainable future for our planet, learn about climate change and environmental protection, gain confidence and meet like-minded people. It’s a unique opportunity for young people to learn about sustainability and environmental decision-making as well as improve prospects for future jobs and university.

The one-year programme consists of structured training, mentoring, a local project, a work placement and a residential summer school out in the wild. Each young person on the programme is assigned a mentor from the Bright Green Future team at CSE to help them find a work placement and organise their project.

One previous participants  said: 'It’s very easy to feel overwhelmed in regards to climate change but on Bright Green Future it was really lovely to meet so many like-minded people with passion for the environment and gave me a lot of hope for the future.'
